saw a handful of republicans on chat shows saying, oh, we'll get the vapors and faint if any defense spending increases are not carried out. what he missed was they were recycling the same four or five republican politicians, and in point of fact that's not where the, certainly not where the country is, it's not where the modern republican party is, it's not where the republicans in the house and the senate are. there's some guys on spending committees who'd like to spend money, that's understandable. but at the end of the day, we should probably figure out how to give the pentagon more flexibility, but they need to save the same amount of dollars promised in the sequester as the rest of the government does. and so the president misjudged believing that republicans would panic during the negotiations on fiscal cliff. he kept waiting for the republicans to put the sequester on the table in order to give it away. and that never happened. the republicans, let's delay the sequester two months, and president obama thought the republicans were retreating. oh, good, i'm going to get my tax

: expert defense expert back on the stand to jodi areas could commit she stabbed her ex-boyfriend and slit his throat she doesn't remember doing it. psychologist told the jurors in her long lasting murder trial she has a severe type of amnesia caused by something dreadful like a killing. the psychologist testified for the defense last week that jody areas memory loss. she claims she killed her ex in self-defense. although that admission came two years after his death and long after she changed her story a couple of times. prosecutors insist the plan that she planned that rah tack and then carried it out in a fit of jealous rage. going at areas psychologist when samuel until a damning moment. admitted that jodi areas had lied on a test to prove she was suffering from ptsd. >> you used it and then concluded that those scores on that pts confirm the presence of ptsd even though you just now told us this is based on a lie. >> perhaps i should have re-administered that test. >> then the session went on like that. martin is looking very intent on discrediting the defense witness. >> has this def

program. you also have the great cooperation between our two governments on the iron dome, missile defense system which is no longer theory, we've seen it work and save lives and reduce the risk to people in israel. so i think it's more important what they do together than whether or not they have a personal relationship. frankly, i think some of the reporting on this is a little bit inaccurate. but that's of less significance. >> you mean in terms of their personal relationship? >> yeah, i think it's blown out of kind of -- sometimes the journalism in this takes the form of some psychology analysis. i really don't think that's the key thing. what we do together and i think that's what they'll be discussing and i'm sure they'll be able to have a good discussion. and this is a critically important time because of the threat posed by iran's nuclear program. we've got to stop that. we've made a very clear determination now that -- and i mean we meaning the congress and the administration that containment is not good enough that we've got to make sure we prevent nuclear weapons capability, ope

we have come too far right now with labor and business arguing about defense and we just can't have a 95% agreement get sabotaged over that. and 13 years is too long. the path for citizenship cannot take 13 years. it is not right for those people who have been living in this country and working hard and playing by the rules. >> that's a discussion we could have in the comfort of a cnn studio when we're all senators. >> kamala harris, ron brownstein, ana navarro, thank you. >>> head for our popular online segment called getting to know. this week you'll get to know more about california ag kamala harris. fareed zakaria "gps" is next. >>> this is "gps global public square." welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. a great show for you today. first up, the question for the economy. should we save or should we spend? what will get the economy moving faster? i'll talk to the chief proponent of spending. nobel prize winning economist paul krugman. then, the race for space. is america losing? china is building its own space station and the u.s. h
the effects of our carbon dioxide emissions on our atmosphere and oceans. our defense and intelligence communities warn of the threats posed by climate change to national security and international stability. economists recognize the distortion of energy markets that overlook the true cost of carbon pollution, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something
in the defense of the majority that that's the way it's been for several years, both when the republicans were in charge and when the democrats are in charge. thea's thacharge that doesn't mean it is right. you have to share it. so then we had to turn around and start voting on the amendments the next morning in the budget committee and we weren't part of that process, because it was on partisan lines. i was particularly disheartened by one amendment that failed on a party-line vote that was offered by senator portman from ohio. his amendment was simply asking the congressional budget office to provide additional information with the cost estimates that it provides on legislation affecting revenues. that's right. it was just asking for additional information. and every member of the majority voted against it. how could a request for additional information be so partisan? we can and must do better for our constituents and our country. several weeks from now we may see the president's budget proposal. of course it'll be late to the game since the house and senate have already acted on the budget
is an unconstitutional and absurd view that the government can limit our right to self-defense. so the federal government with guns in a state, will it need the assistance of state police to enforce those regulations? yes. that's where we are on that. >>steve: and the reason a number of states are trying to come up with this new gun legislation is because they see washington, d.c. and they're worried about a gun grab? >> correct. the states -- our home state of new jersey could not, for example, use the police to frustrate federal law enforcement but it could say to state and local place you will not cooperate. that will make federal stphoerplt of tighter -- make federal enforcement of tighter federal gun laws nearly impossible. >>steve: we'll find out what they do do because of course the federal government has bigger fish to fry. >> where did kilmeade go? >>steve: i don't know. straight ahead on this tuesday morning. did the kwao*eugt brothers get it -- did the wright brothers get it wrong? historians now saying the wright brothers weren't the first in flight. if you're a veteran in work, stick around.
're on the defensive as more and more criticisms and comparison come in after that launch of that new samsung galaxy 4 that we talked about extensively on friday. they've updated the website over the weekend, not too aim specifically at one device, just all the competition out there. apple updating the website with a new brag sheet about all the features that the iphone has that others don't. there's the iphone and then there's everything else. some of the things that it is touting, it's j.d. power and associates award, the aluminum case, great battery life without a great big battery itself. it's directing an arrow right at the samsung galaxy four that i mentioned came out last week and some features that it has, it has a plastic, not aluminum casing, a big battery life and a big battery at that. no retina display but many features that the galaxy phone has that the iphone doesn't, including a higher resolution display, five inch screen, smart control that allows yyu to tilt without using your fingers to go up and down a webpage. 10 million units are expected to be sold in the first month when it com

's in a department of defense encrypted e-mail, nothing is really secure. but these cut-out accounts that public officials in washington have gotten in trouble for using before, that their friends use when they correspond with them, there are a lot of people as whoever is out there doing the stuff, a lot of people their collars may be feeling tighter today for what they have floater around out there in cyberspace. >> megyn: guccifier, i love it. >> i think it sounds bet sneer did you live in the suburbs, not if the government has its way. a government report suggests there may be a plan to change where and how people are living in america. hope you like manhattan. i hope you like the city. and a dramatic twist as the cash-strapped island of cyprus is now talking about nationalizing its country's pensions to save the struggling economy there. so he they couldn't seize the bank accounts, it's under consideration, now they're going to seize your pension. and we'll see how private money keeps coming up to attempts to head off disaster and are people too quick to dismiss the notion this could happen
ban on gay marriage, prop 8, which voters approved in and on wednesday, the defense of marriage act will be argued, saying that federal agencies will define marriage as being between one man and one woman and advocates are warningave major cultural shift if marriage equality becomes part of the law of the land. >> i wish it were just about the marriage altar. it is about much more. it's about altering all of society, with marriage goes what our children for taught, parents losing the right to define the morals for their children. it's about religious freedom. they are intertwined in our culture. it's about the right to conduct yours business as you see fit. >> support for same-sex marriage has groab, but it's favored by less than half, 49% of registered voters. one of the attorneys arguing for marriage equality this week says he thinks his side will win and it won't be close since he says, marriage is a civil right. >> we are not asking for a new constitutional right. the constitutional right to marry is well established. in fact, the supreme court has ruled you can't take away the
of irresponsibility in the republican budget is defense. instead of increasing pentagon spending, we should reform it. the most obvious target is the nuclear arsenal larger than anything we need for nuclear deterrence. 10% of our nuclear weapons would decimate russia. a handful of missiles would wipe north korea off the map. yet they propose to spend over 2/3 of a trillion dollars over the next 10 years on this bloated arsenal. before we increase the pentagon budget, maybe we should figure out why the f-35 joint strike fighter, which is now seven years behind schedule, 70% over budget, and the pentagon still doesn't know how it's going to meet the more than $1 trillion in operating and maintenance cost. amazingly the republicans want to increase spending for the pentagon, the only major budget so flawed it can't even be audited. there are bipartisan opportunities to reduce and reform the military, but you're not hearing about it in the republican budget this week. instead of a republican rerun of a bad reality tv show, let's consider working together on areas to change how the government does busines

to be probe more defensive in nature than cyclical. we're going to see a little bit of pause in the preference for risk assets, given concerns in cyprus, also some weak economic data coming out of germany. so, clearly, we're going to have a little bit of pause in risk. you're going to see some of the more defensive asset classes, health care, other high dividend-paying sectors, potentially doing better in the near-term. however, for the rest of the year, i continue to think that more cyclically sensitive industrials like technology can do better. >> and what do you think about -- >> i think there's got to be more offense. >> go ahead, say it again. >> maria, i think there's got to be more offense. that the auto and housing story is still in tact. that the energy infrastructure story for the u.s. is very much in tact. dresser and trinity are two plays there, and those are stocks we've talked about throughout this year. and they're going to be the stocks we're talking about in december of this year still. >> maria, i agree you have to play -- >> go ahead. >> i agree that you want to be playing o
? >> yeah, i would say that one of the surprises at least for me has been how well the defensive names have done in the uptake we've seen since the first of the year, and the cyclicals have lagged somewhat. i would be doing some rotating, believing the u.s. and global economy are going to be okay, i think some industrial and technology names make some sense. cheryl: all right. what are you avoiding right now? >> utilities still make me nestles. i think the fundamentals are mixed, and the stocks are fairly expensive. it was the place so many people went chasing yield and pushed the price of those stocks up quite a bit. so there's some telecommunications names that are okay, but most of the plain vanilla electric utilities, i think, are fully valued. cheryl: you've got some specific stock picks, and you like a few names, medtronic, that's interesting, mdt, pfizer, v.a.ler rah, northrup grumman. defense, interesting. but pfizer, health care. >> yeah. i think health care among the defensive group is the the most interesting. health care stocks, we think, have reasonable fundamentals and not exp
's defense. it is actually the antithesis of what we need. when the budget certainty and flexibility. sequestration compromises our readiness and compounds risk. left unaddressed, it could lead to a security gap, a lapse in coverage against threats to our national security interests. it is also the law. i'm hopeful but not optimistic that both its magnitude will be defused in the budget deal appeared in the meantime we have no choice but to prepare for its effect, which is our worst-case scenario. are you feeling afflicted? if you are, you're in good company. let me tell you this. the coverage, to continue my insurance metaphor, maybe a little less than what you were used to, but it is still the best available. and it is going to get better in time. here is where i hope my confidence bring some comfort. last week i called our joint chiefs and our combatant commanders to discuss how we will lead to this latest contraction, and it is the latest contraction. it is a bit of a historical pattern. in that room, where over 600 years of military experience was around the table, i thought we
defense and how we prepare our civilian and military leaders to deal with future threats to national and international security. i think remains to be seen. there are some major impediments to us learn these lessons. theof those impediments is tendency in the conventional wisdom to view these wars dismissively as wars of choice or aberrations. unless you are going to say that future policy makers will make perfect policy decisions in the future based on your perfect foresight or understanding of the situation at the outset, then we obviously have to be prepared. these are determined enemies in very complicated and burns. the other impediment is just defining -- one of the manifestations is what i call a raiding mentality that has emerged from a misunderstanding of what led to the success in iraq during 2007-2009, during which we had a very good shot consolidating gains after that time and getting to a sustainable political outcome that was consistent with our interest and the interest of the iraqi people. future work mainly is about identifying an enemy organization in conducting rai
down. but he's not counted. he's not in that department of defense number on wounded soldiers because the wall is not considered hostile enemy. and so there are thousands and thousands of these other soldiers, some of them very, very severely wounded, that were not so much -- that we're not so much hearing about, and i think that -- you know, they were in iraq just like everyone else, or they were in afghanistan, and they deserve our support ju need to believe that. so not the typical place for a psychologist. nothing about my people and involved typical places raise psychologists so what did i do in the midst of this? when i returned i ran away as many do after trauma. i left the navy, but clinical work altogether. i was hoping to find some peace. during that time rule number 2 was written by accident, it was written as therapy. a vietnam marine, retired colonel who has written several books about the marines in vietnam contacted me and said you need to write a book where every line in that poem is captured and i was very respectful since he is a colonel. i settled respect, absolutel
detailed talks with the russian foreign and defense ministers in the last week. i would just make one of the point about the issue of the arms embargo, because i felt sitting about the european council chamber there was a slight similarity between some of the arguments that were being made about not putting more weapons into syria that seem to be very familiar to the discussions we had about bosnia and the appalling events that followed. and in my view it is better to be engaged working with the syrian opposition trying to bring this conflict to an end. >> anne marie morris. >> thank you, mr. speaker. the numbers on the coastal railway lines are growing fast. given local tourism, can the prime minister assure me urgent investment letter and to repair recent flood damage? >> i can get my auto a friend that assurance and in no the transport sector will be visiting her constituency. investment is going into the hole of the line, including the major investment shortly to be completed which will help capacity all down the line. >> mr. speaker, the prime minister will be aware of the growin

a couple minutes, suzanne. basically the defense in this case want dr. samuels to testify about what a crime scene can tell you about a crime, whether it was premeditated or if it was an act of passion. the defense believes that the crime scene is evidence that this is an act of passion because it was so messy, if you will. and they want samuels to talk about it. the prosecution says that is completely nonsense that this guy is not, a, qualified to do it. and there's nothing really there, it's junk science. so the judge will hear from both sides in the next 15 minutes and expected to rule from the defense, so the direct testimony can resume whether or not the judge will allow this part of it in we'll find out very soon. >> ted, before we get any kind of rulings at all, there is buzz now, not surprising, of a tv movie that is actually in the works. what do we know about that? >> yes, well, what we don't know is what it would be rated given all the graphic testimony in this case. >> no kidding. >> we know lifetime -- yeah, lifetime is making a movie about this. a made for tv movie, the
